Building a Successful Philosophy Club

Question and answers HERE

My suggestion:
Ask the department for some money for "Philosophy Club" pins, shirts, patches or something. I met many people who ended up declaring philosophy as their major and joining the philosophy club, much later, because of these somewhat geeky but very proudly worn accessories.  

I found having students present papers and then discuss them was a very valuable activity. Kind of a mock conference. 

Keep the reading short and almost down to nothing during mid-term and finals or people wont attend. Ethical issues are great  to talk about with little reading.
